For 40+ five star reviews check out our sister condo at Sapphire Beach - vrbo# 207759.

Welcome to Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. These are individually owned condos. And while the name says "resort" we lack most all the amenities that you would find at a typical resort. For example, there is not a restaurant on site, no spa, no tennis, no cabana boy....but you do get to be in a condo that is closest to the beach in all of St Thomas. You are literally step to the beach with an awesome unobstructed view and the sunrise over St John is unbelievable.

For more pics and a travel guide on Sapphire Beach and Beachtacular! You can access my web site via the links in VRBO. Most all questions you may have can be answered in the travel/vacation guide that is published on my web site. The travel/vacation guide is 10 pages of very useful information that is a must read for those that are new to the US Virgin Islands and Sapphire Beach.

Building E has wonderful views of the sunrise; you will love waking up each morning to a beachtacular sunrise whether in bed, or on the patio, simply amazing!

This beach front one bedroom condo is on the ground floor at Sapphire Beach. The patio steps onto the beach at the quiet end of the resort (bring your water shoes if you want to snorkel in front of condo, as it is rocky at the waters edge). Our ground floor building E beach front suite offers a king bed. The suite includes a bedroom area, sitting area with cable and TV, kitchen with appliances, tile bathroom with shower and double sinks. The private patio looks out to beautiful St. John. Beautiful! Listen to the gentle waves in the background as you dine on your patio or relax in your comfortable accommodations.

Wake up and look out your door and see the beautiful sunrise, white sandy beach and blue water. Enjoy the wonderful snorkeling just steps from your door. The location is great for honeymoons, romantic getaways, fun in the sun, and pure relaxation. Step right out to the quiet beach or take a very short walk to the pool or marina - slip rentals and day trips are available. Red Hook and the ferry to St. John are just minutes away. Red Hook and St. John have great dining opportunities and plenty of nightly dancing and fun...

Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas - great snorkeling!!

Contact us for availability. We would love to have you!

Why Bernard J Arroyo chose St. Thomas

It is right on the beach! This truly is one of the best locations in St Thomas if you desire to be directly on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a review a guest left (it is posted on another vacation rental site/AirBNB).



“Bernard was an excellent host, and his condo is beautiful. Overall, we had a great stay. Bernard took the time to answer all of my questions over the phone before our trip, and helpfully provided us the names and locations nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and bars. The condo is right on the beach, with an amazing view of St. John across the water - you can't ask for much more than that. Waking up to the sound of the waves was blissful. We found the best place to go in the water is on the northern side of Sapphire Bay, about a 3-minute walk from the condo along the beach, where the water is much clearer and the sand is more fine. The resort had a nice pool area, and felt very safe. Most of the guests appeared to be couples in their 30s and 40s, along with a few families with young kids. The resort is conveniently located about a 2-minute drive from Red Hook, with quick access to the ferry to St. John (which is a must-see), and some pretty cool bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying at this condo.”

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The rental was in a prefect location in proximity to the water and the beach. While the rental would not be considered high end, the proximity and access within steps to the beach make this all worthwhile, after all, we didn't go to St. Thomas to be inside. Snorkeling was great right off the rental as well as down the beach. Bernard provided plenty of information about the room, area and attractions which made the stay even better. We had no issues at this place except for a couple power outages. One lasted well over an hour, but that was a good time to take a walk and do some exploring.

Great place to stay at Sapphire Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice place in E building for a great view of St John and British Virgin Islands. The location is private yet steps away from one of the nicest beaches on the island. There is a beautiful pool that has two levels with spectacular trade winds and views. I would definitely recommend this location. It has all the necessities you need to enjoy your stay.

Loved it!!!! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to St. Thomas several times. We always stay in different condos and try different locations. This is our favorite! Beautiful beach and great snorkeling. Condo was great, well maintained, plenty of towels (bathroom & beach) great location on the property. Unbelievable views right from your deck. Marina was also close so you can watch the boats going in and out. Beach bar & grill right on the sandy beach just a short walk from the condo. Air conditioner worked great and the bed was comfortable. We always rent a car because we like to explore the island and go when we want to go. Very short drive to Red Hook to many restaurants, bar & grills & very nice grocery store (Moe's). Owner also offered great information beforehand. We had no problems at all and would definitely stay here again.

Unbelievable Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time staying at this beautiful condo in St. Thomas last month. We were there to celebrate his 50th birthday and we could not have picked a more idyllic place. It is truely paradise.

The owner was great and leading up to our stay emailed and communicated about every detail of the place, surrounding area and answered all our questions so we were prepared for the trip/stay. Even though I had seen the pictures prior to arriving, I was awe struck from the moment I opened the door to the condo. The view is beyond breathtaking!! The deck has a great (grill and all) and I could not peel myself away from the beautiful beach and ocean just steps (literally 20 feet) from our deck. Each morning I woke to the most extraordinary sunrises coming up over St. John's.

Speaking of St. John's...I was a little concerned how I was going to be with out renting a car on the island. In all honesty, with this condo you don't need a car. Red Hook with the fery terminal, restaurants, market, and THE BEST HAPPY HOURS is SO close. And most times I never wanted to leave sapphire beach...at all. The most beautiful water. The color is simply amazing. Just gorgeous. The snorkelling right outside our door and actually in the entire bay was just beautiful. My husband and I snorkelled 3 times each day. The arrray of fish and the coral and variety in the different areas of the bay made it so we could pass hours exploring below the water. I was thoroughly amazed we saw so many fish ... sting rays, white spotted eagle ray, turtles, cuttle fish, yellow tail snappers, puffer fish, parrot fish and the list goes on and on...

I loves going to sleep to the sound of the water and waking to the glorious sunrises. The experience was incredible. We did enjoy going to St johns for a day and renting a car and visiting all the beaches. It was so easy to get there as the ferry to St Johns as I mentioned was so close and ran very frequently. We had a great day there and recommend it. Honesty though, the beach where we stayed was just as great. I particularly liked being in this condo: 1. it was on the ground floor which was fantastic for access to the water. If you stay on the upper levels you have to walk around the entire building to get down to the water. Much more convenient to be on the ground level. 2. This unit was much more private than the other units since it was the end of the property next to a marina. Highly recommend!!

Location wonderful

Location was great. Construction mess and parking lot condition were disappointing. Unit itself was clean and well maintained.
